Fine Le Roy & Fils Carriage Clock with Case.

£2,650.00

No11365 is a superb gilt Carriage clock with push repeat and alarm function, it was finished and retailed by the famous Le Roy & Fils, 211 Regent Street, London and of The Palais Royal, Paris. The clock was made by Drocourt and also bears their stamp and number (in small) on the backplate. The gilding on this clock has been carefully preserved (see macro images) and has that wonderful ‘orange peel’ finish you get with mercurial gilding. The outer protective leather covered case is in remarkable condition with glass panel and slide, we can assume the fact that this clock has been protected in the outer case for the last 140 years has preserved this rare finish seldom seen these days. The clock strikes on a soft gong and has hourly and half hourly strike.  Circa 1890.
A great investment piece…in our opinion!
